I have recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS alongside Windows 7. After that, the Internet is working in Windows 7 via ethernet, but in Ubuntu 12.04, ethernet is not working. It is showing me the message WIRED NETWORK Disconnected-you are offline now. Why this problem is coming and how to solve this?

Welcome to Superuser! To get a better response, you should also mention any steps you have taken to try to fix this yourself –  Canadian Luke Oct 9 '12 at 17:44
When do you see this message? What is showing it to you? (Some specific program?) And when you see it, is the wired network actually disconnected? (What does ipconfig say?) –  David Schwartz Oct 9 '12 at 18:10
